Generations Grimlock Being Remolded Into Beast Wars Megatron?

Motto: "Keep calm and form Voltron"
Weapon: Double-Barreled, Armor-Piercing Particle Beam Cann...
There is an interesting test shot that has shown up on AC Toys of Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. What makes this test shot interesting is the fact that it features a different head that is very reminiscent of Beast Wars Megatron. Could we have a Beast Wars Megatron remold in store for the future? Perhaps even a small step into Generations Beast Wars toys?

It appears one of Godzillabot's old digibashes from a few months back gave Hasbro a thought.

He doesn't really count as Transmetal Megs unless he's got the "ass-fan/bosters", does he?

I wouldn't get it because BW wasn't my thing.
I don't see a problem with it but after the outcry over Grimlock's hollow body and huge tail, I'd be surprised if they pursued this. Maybe as a Botcon exclusive.

Ass-fans? :???: If you meant the intakes he can deploy in beast mode and robot mode, they were on his beast hips/robot back.

I don't think this is supposed to represent Megatron's Transmetal body, but rather his Season 1 body.

Makes me wonder how they would pull an Optimus Primal. Either new mold, or remold. Money's on the remold theory.

I can dig it. Might take some getting used to (even for me), as the body screams "bruiser" rather than "Machiavelli", but that head is badass. If this is true, I would hope for different weapons more reminiscent of Megs. Maybe they would go so far as to retool it enough for the dino head to be used as a hand gun, eh?

I remember someone calling ROTF Ravage's cannons "ass cannons", and on a whim, decided to call Transmetals Meg's boosters "ass-boosters." Not very suitable, in retrospect. :lol:

I naturally thought it would be Transmetals since his season one body was organic as opposed to mechanical.

Maybe the head will come off and clip to his hand. What would season 1 Megs be without a gigantic, bot crushing maw for a hand?

Sorry, Hasbro, I think this one misses...

The Japanese version of Transmetal Megatron, D-40 Metals Megatron, uses a different plastic that eliminates the waist snapping problem.

Actually, it doesn't. Both versions are equally prone to breakage.

I for one love this idea. I don't know if I'd rather see him painted up just purple, or see him brown and purple like him Transmetals figure though. Either way, this is a great offering from Hasbro to us that feel BW goes completely unnoticed lately. Plus, when the Dinobot DLC came out for FoC, first thing I did was attempt to make BW Megatron, and now I can have him in figure form.

I was thinking the other day how they could remold a lot of Grimlock figured into a pretty decent BW Megatron homage, so I hope this is true.
